My naturopathic Dr. had told me to get off gluten earlier this year. I did so - on and off. :-) You know how that goes right?

Well, one reason was because of adrenal fatigue. Another was because of persistent dizziness and numbness in my left leg. It used to be a lot worse - in my left hand all the time and even loss of some muscle control. It is better, but the symptoms come on so randomly.

I took an (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned) blood test and guess what? It came back SEVERE intolerance to wheat and a MODERATE REACTION to gluten/glaidin.

I've sen the results to my regular MD to see if they will allow me to take a celiac test.

I'm so upset today. Honestly. The drastic food changes I'm sure are a part of it, but more importantly just not knowing where this odd ball neuropathy comes from. The regular Dr.'s have done brain scans, thyroid testing, blood sugar, and other overall workups.

Has anyone been through this?

And, does this sound like Celiac?

Have the doctors done a B12 level on you? If not it might be a good idea. If your under 500 some sublingual B12 might help. Make sure you see the test results as some doctors go by 250 as the lower cut off and that has been shown recently to be too low.

If you still on gluten it isn't going to hurt to have them do a celiac panel on you. We can show negatives on tests even on a full gluten diet and if you have been gluten free or gluten light you should go back on gluten for a couple of months before you get tested.
